Emily Browning Is a SLEEPING BEAUTY in the Sex Trade

     February 9, 2010


If you love organizing your movie collection alphabetically, you’re going to love this: Emily Browning will star in Julia Leigh’s Sleeping Beauty.  However, this Sleeping Beauty isn’t so much of a Disney fairy tale as much as it’s “a haunting erotic fairy tale about a student who drifts into prostitution and finds her niche as a woman who sleeps, drugged, in a ‘Sleeping Beauty chamber’ while men do to her what she can’t remember the next morning.”  It seems a little grandiose to construct a chamber specifically for one sex act.  What happened to the good old days where a sex dungeon would suffice for all your haunting erotic needs?  We truly live in a culture of excess.

Browning replaces Mia Wasikowska in the role (who, as we reported yesterday, will star in Cary Fukunaga’s adaptation of Jane Eyre).  Browning also provided a last-minute save last year when she replaced Amanda Seyfried in Zach Snyder’s Sucker Punch. [The Playlist]
